Paul was a prosecutor for 7 years in Harris County and finished his career as a Major Offender/Special Crimes prosecutor. As a Special Crimes prosecutor, Paul worked directly with law enforcement as their cases were being investigated. Through this experience, Paul was privy to the most innovative techniques used by law enforcement to solve crimes. The knowledge gained by working directly with law enforcement gives Paul the ability to dissect investigations and determine how best to defend a charge. There are two sides to every story/case, the law enforcement version and the version of the person who is being accused. Prosecutors are typically only provided the law enforcement version and it is not until charges are filed that the government is able to receive the "whole" truth. As you can see on Paul's results page, there are many cases that should never have been filed.
Prior to Special Crimes/Major Offenders, Paul was assigned to felony and misdemeanor courts and was tasked with handling the cases that randomly fell into his court. Paul also tried cases as a prosecutor, was involved in the hiring of new prosecutors, and supervised a division of more than 45 prosecutors. This experience gives Paul the insight and ability to present his client's defense in the most favorable light. Many times, prosecutors don't choose the cases they have to prosecute, they are just assigned the case.
Most prosecutors are overworked and do not have the time to do the work that should have been completed by the law enforcement agency that handled the investigation.
